No Fail Tea Biscuits

I made these for the kids and they loved them.  I cut them in semi-circles and called them "Moon biscuits" and the kids were very excited by them. 

 Preheat oven 450 degrees F.

  • 4 cups of flour
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 8 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup of margarine (2 blocks)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 cup of milk (I like a wetter batter and used 1 1/4 cups)

  1. Whisk together first four ingredients to blend together.
  2. Then cut in margarine until it looks like cornmeal.
  3. Add eggs to milk.
  4. Bring all ingredients together with a fork, turn on to floured counter and knead a few times.
  5. Roll or pat out until 1/2 inch thick.
  6. Cut with floured cutter.
  7. The thickness of dough and size of cutter determines the cook time, I start peaking at about 12 minutes. But they should be done between 12-14 minutes.
